hours a day seven days a week i'm karen. well the u.k.'s prime minister and scotland's leader have signed a historic deal paving the way for a referendum on breaking away by the end of two thousand and fourteen sara first is in edinburgh. prime minister david cameron met here in edinburgh today with first minister alex salmond they signed that memorandum of understanding ahead of the referendum for scotland's independence it will be held in the autumn of twenty forty now that is going to focus around a single question is the prime minister said today is that the biggest question of all will be set to assert for scotland all a united kingdom now that this is being used in the coming law wrangling lots of consultations but now all sides are going to be able to get a forward and they're going to be wanting to set forth their arguments to the scottish public about whether or not scotland should indeed be independent the
polls often around a quarter of people actually full independence but you know it really is two years until that vote will be held it's an incredibly turbulent climate is the moment they campaign for keeping scotland within the union will say they said wes is to say there's nothing to worry about the majority in scotland want to remain within the union but you know it is old still to play for here and maybe west is a taking a bit of a gamble because they drop that middle option the devolution max the options of perhaps more powers to be handed to scotland that we struck there's no middle ground it really is one question it's all or nothing and you know possibly there'll be a lot of people here in scotland who are maybe on the fence he will say well i k we might not have wanted that we might have wanted to remain within the uk but actually we don't want to be left with nothing if we going to remain you can see a very interesting couple of years of fist fighting at the back of the school and
begun prime minister david cameron house trust he believes the u.k. and scotland would benefit from sticking together but scottish m.p. linda fabiani believes even those opposing her nation's independence know can cope on its own. the new parties to conservatives the liberal plantin liberal democrats they are no longer seeing scotland couldn't make it but they are seeing is a push. to get into a nation that was one sometime you people use that scotland pursuant to the united kingdom and then we we believe that a lot of the money in is that lease and argument started scotland is quite clearly capable of in a bind everyone has to lay out their stock and it be up to us those who believe in independence those who believe that scotland can be a better country if it's an entity it's assumed decisions we show our case and the
scottish people i meet such as the last two people to vote no that is the seeming parties you keep it's up to them to put their case for staying in the union and by the people scotland and scots would be big check maintaining links with united kingdom that mean they're cocked over rather than an independent country has a big need for the e.u. has slapped the syrian government with fresh sanctions it comes as claims emerge that soviet era cluster bombs are being used by assad forces moscow says that it cannot be confirmed because the region's being flooded with illegal weapons from abroad artist peter oliver has details. human rights watch the new york based watchdog has said this following what they've seen in a online video that soviet era cluster bombs were being used by the syrian government against the civilian population in syria and the ongoing conflict there now russia has rebuffed these claims wholeheartedly with the union there are
plenty of weapons in the region right now with huge amounts being supplied illegally to syria and neighboring countries alleged there immersed in reason for in trainers in the conflict zone human this is being confirmed by independent media through the region is flooded with gnomes reproduce it's very hard to determine where they're all coming from the alleged cluster bombs are said to be from the soviet era we can come to terms with some countries regulating big production of soviet technology without a license fees and so there's plenty of things that need to be sorted out which together if you also took a lover of was giving is address he reiterated russia's stance which hasn't changed since the conflict first started over a year ago which is that they want to see both sides lay down their weapons they want a peaceful solution through dialogue so that stance is being backed up by the current joint u.n. arab league peace envoy lakhdar brahimi now he took over the job from kofi annan
you remember he's currently on a tour of the region trying to convince syria's neighbors to stop pushing for both sides to lay down arms and comes to the table and come to the table for talks all of this comes against the backdrop of a further round of sanctions that have just been signed off on by the european union on syria. turkey says it will intercept all syria bound clients carrying dubious cargo has already granted an armenian plane taking it to aleppo and searched just cargo for possible military equipment and last week a syrian passenger jet was stopped for allegedly carrying russian made me missions for government forces moscow said the cargo was legal electronic equipment for radar stations manual oxon writer editor in chief of a german news magazine says turkey's violating the law. it's a complete procreation syria about not serious also procreation well cohorts of peace in the middle east region and so proliferation of more of the civil life
critique in general or for charity does right now this is this complete program again it's not new with the billions going to western countries from goldstein's to the syrian rebels we are not discussing about the whore material we are not discussing about the weapons that i'm going issue and of course the communication technology which is the letter to the caribbean sea in syria by other governments we are discussing now about two planes intercepted by purity and this should be the international ok so you see this is what the u.s. government is doing there it is part of the program or we witness it since a long time. a british man who hacked into the pentagon ten years ago is set to find out his fate on tuesday washington has been seeking his extradition and a found guilty gary mckinnon suffers from mild autism could spend sixty years behind bars parties laura smith now reports his family fears he could take his life if he's shipped off to the u.s.

conservatives but opposed by the lib dems let's now talk to political blogger church. george so what is the point of this proposal of after leaving the u.k. they can decide to come straight back in again. where they're planning to. have all of them and then. it's us events if you so the idea of. the padre said powers to get pretty crazy stuff and you have a home of this just as you please your skeptic conservative backbenchers during summer has been participating and i would say rather than suzy asked equally with brussels on justice and home affairs why the change of heart now. well it's because from twenty fourteen member states will lose their individual veto. this area and they won't be able to do either and he proposes that come forward is that for you case using power was wrong it's you it's under the lisbon treaty to
opt out so so it's a net result. policy they have the conservatives who support tree some a while the lib dems are in fierce opposition to redrawing contracts with the e.u. well could this latest work we see into this latest split in the coalition look at least. well they could be quite a big con crasher the lib dems have always taken a very different position on on the. european policy in front of the six while the conservatives now more than ever are you know you are sketchy part these three how to find. he with anything good to say about even the mavens and so i expect this arguments will rumble on with close to the hazards of an agreement between the two parties and. basically give the. u.k. doesn't have to decide which powers it wants all to back in soon so its twenty four
tina has the potential to cause a lot of tension with the coalition partners between now and the general election that business secretary then cable earlier said the e.u. could be plunged into war if the euro collapses while the education secretary has reportedly said the u.k. should quit the e.u. unless extensive powers are taken back from brussels are british politicians trying to divert blame for problems at home to the e.u. . do you know i always try and see that the u.k. is one of the few e.u. countries actually to be back in recession the other is city and conservative ministers always looking. to avoid to push the blame on to the rather than on to their or their will stare a c. program. and go to leave the e.u. aid is actually supported by i believe around eight cabinet ministers that's because there's actually little. likelihood of the. thing the
even katie hopes out of parts of this and. that's why i believe either u.k. should threaten to leave the leave a cobbled together in the hope that will then persuade brussels to grant concessions car. i love from london ga even political blogger thank you george. a libyan opposition stronghold is facing an ongoing siege with the residents calling for international help the conflict in bali bombing rather wally's already killed ten people in a series of armed confrontations last week the siege began when the national congress tried to arrest the suspected murderers of the man who captured colonel gadhafi but residents refused to hand them over dr abdul hamid al shannen doherty from the bani walid council is stuck in the middle of a battle but the boys couldn't. really go to the feast nor that are

a research reactor but anti sanctions campaigner professor our boss at the lot says it's not a fear of a nuclear armed iran that's behind the piling sanctions. u.s. policies against iran have always been designed by the new conservatives and these are already lobby so that the negotiations with iran trade rather than succeed in fact are absolutely no justification for any kind of sanctions against iraq including door to door you inside the church because the war has not had that version of its nuclear program program or your reports have always confirmed this so all of this is designed so the negotiations fail because the u.s. and the e.u. . all interested in a regime change they want the iranian people to hurt so much so that there is less discontent in the country roads so that they can pave the road put a regime change in iraq the sanctions hurt ordinary people but the same time it's.
the people against the west because even some sectors of the media courses in iran who have been traditionally pro-west know or quite hostile to the united states and to all the polices against you want because they see that it is not a war and who is not trying to negotiate in good faith it is the united states and e.u. who failed to negotiate in good. chain reaction style protest international latest copycat stunt took place and london st paul's cathedral or why men from the occupy movement chained themselves to the. service and protest at the wealthy churches links to big backs also why having into the red light district may no longer be anonymous police in the us have decided the most effective method to combat prostitution has just to name and shame the terrorists. now onto
